Ingredients

  • 320 g dark milk chocolate broken into rough squares (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter (see notes)
  • 20 g mini pretzels roughly chopped
  • 25 g roasted unsalted peanuts roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Line a 24 hole mini muffin tin with mini muffin liners/mini cupcake liners.
  • Combine chopped pretzels & peanuts, set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat chocolate over low heat for about 2 mins, or until just melted.
  • Add peanut butter to chocolate, mixing to melt until smooth & combined.
  • Pour chocolate mixture into a heatproof jug, then pour chocolate evenly between muffin tin holes.
  • Sprinkle the top of each chocolate cup with peanut & pretzel mixture - pressing down slightly if needed (see note).
  • Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours or until set, serve cold.

Notes

The chocolate I have used is a new Cadbury product (at least here in Australia) called Dark Milk chocolate. Before I go any further NO, they are not paying me! I really like this product & have used it in other recipes because I like the combination - sometimes you want something stronger than milk chocolate, but dark will be too heavy. Perfect. In fact, I quite often used to combine milk & dark myself to achieve this before this product came along. Maybe Cadbury are in my head.
I used crunchy peanut butter for extra texture, but you could substitute it for smooth if you like.
Once you have topped the little chocolate cups with the peanut/pretzel mixture, you may need to press the pieces in VERY slightly, just so they are all anchored to the chocolate, but not so much that they sink entirely.
